How Does Neurofeedback Brain Training Help Children?
Neurofeedback is exercise for your brain. Neurofeedback Brain Training is about calming the nervous system and bringing the brain and body into balance in an efficient manner. Your child is hooked up to the neurofeedback system with sensors attached to the ears and head. Using the Dynamical Neurofeedback system as your exercise equipment, it tells your brain what it is doing (256 times per second). Your brain is provided with accurate and precise information so that it can re-calibrate itself. Like any other type of training, the benefits are cumulative and maximum results are seen with accumulated sessions of
Is Neurofeedback Safe?
When you are sitting in the chair, listening to the music, you will hear brief micro-pauses in the music/sound. It is the brain that is turning off the music, and the brain that turns the music back on. The brief interruptions signal the brain to re-calibrate itself. There is no impedance put through the brain, hence dynamical neurofeedback is a holistic self-driven process with no side effects. You are simply inviting the brain towards its own self-regulation.
The Benefits of Neurofeedback
Dynamical Brain Training helps increase the flexibility and resilience of your child's brain and results in better sleep, more focus, increased confidence, and fewer feelings of being overwhelmed. Memory is enhanced, compulsions become less, and your child feels calmer and more able to regulate their emotions. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) lists neurofeedback as a "Level1=Best Support" intervention for Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorders (ADHD).
How Many Brain Training Sessions Will My
Each child's brain is unique and responds differently. As a rule, within 6 sessions, most report better sleep and shifts in the ability to calm oneself. With 10-20, your child's sleep cycles reset, and you can see bigger changes. With 20-40 sessions, the training is integrated. Once you are in a place where your child's behaviour and feelings of well-being are improved, the training can complete. Tune-ups every 1-2 months can provide ongoing benefits.
How Long Will the Results of Neurofeedback Last?
With Neurofeedback Brain Training, the brain is learning a new skill. It is like riding a bike. You never forget how. Once you have done 10-20 sessions, your brain integrates the learning. You can stop the training anytime you want to and pick it up again later.
How Often Should
My Child Brain Train?
Every brain is different. There is no hard-set rule. Consistency is key and as with exercise, rest days are good for integration too. Our brain training programs are structured so that you complete 20 sessions over a 2–4 month period. Training usually begins 2-4 times per week, decreasing over time to once per week.
